Confidence and Self Esteem.

Reese Witherspoon has used hypnosis to overcome her insecurities and improve her confidence and self esteem.

According to the Cambridge Times web site, the 38-year-old actress said that years of being told she was too fat or short for Hollywood roles had taken their toll on her confidence and self esteem, so she turned to hypnosis for a confidence boost before taking on the role of Cheryl Strayed in ‘Wild’.

Confidence and Self Esteem

Over the last decade we have found that one of the most common uses for self hypnosis is building confidence  and self esteem, so we thought that it would be a good idea to explain just how you might build self confidence  and self esteem using hypnosis.  As our starting point, let’s take a look at how you build self confidence in the real world. How do you get to the point where doing something scary just isn’t scary any more?  Well basically, you do it and do it until it just isn’t scary any more! Hardly a deeply insightful answer, but true. Think of anything you have mastered that was difficult at first, and you’ll see that’s what happened.  Fear, or lack of confidence, is all about uncertainty, and once you have done something enough for the uncertainty to mostly disappear, the fear disappears too.  But that leaves a big problem. What if you’re so scared to do something you can’t even get started? Or what if it’s not the sort of thing you can practise?

This is where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis builds a ‘bridge’ from where you are just now to your destination – doing what you want to do comfortably.  Hypnosis will assist you to find out what you want t do next after a job loss or retrenchment or what career to choose which matches your passion.
